It's the end of week 7! 2 months almost done, here I come month 3! Non acne related, things have been a little crazy. Some person broke into my car that was parked in the garage and stole my gps and my garage door opener. Awesome, right? I swear, it's very obvious by the contents of my car that I'm a mom and a teacher. (I had some teaching manuals in the back seat that I got out of our storage unit and various other teaching supplies in the car) Ugh! What a jerk.
I have a hair appointment tonight, which I kind of don't want to go to. I hate trying new places and I don't have high hopes for this place. I called last night for an appointment and I got in for today. That's usually not a great sign. And it's pretty expensive. My cut is going to be $45 and the color $55. It's not super expensive if they do a good job, but if it does not look spectacular I'm going to be super angry.
I went to spinning for the first time this morning, just to switch things up a bit. I thought that spinning might be nicer on the joints than yoga. It was really fun. And a good workout. I think I'll keep adding some of this to my regular routine. Usually for cardio I just hop on an elliptical or a treadmill for a few miles. I think this is better since the instructor really challenges you. I'm going to make my husband go on Sunday with me. Haha! He'll love it. Alright, onto the good stuff...
the good stuff
Ummm, let's see. I thought that I was doing really well, but then I got a few whiteheads this week. I will say that when I have full makeup on, you can only see a handful of actives now, there's a definite reduction from last week. And there were a few days this week where I thought that the red spots were fading a bit too. I'm not sure that that's really the case though. I may have just been having a good face day.
The tums is definitely working. Last night, I had a little bit of heartburn. I'm almost positive it was from not drinking enough water combined with laying down too soon after I ate. So, I'm going to pay very close attention to my water intake here on out.
the bad stuff
The whiteheads that I got made me angry. But they're going down quickly. Let's just hope nothing else crops up to take their place.
Water is your friend. I've also found that when I don't drink enough water, I get much more stiff. I've not been in enough pain to take any medication, but I can tell that my body is more sensitive to being properly hydrated.
That's all for now! I really think that I'm sailing right along now. Only 1 1/2 more weeks until my next derm visit. I'm ready to go!
